Meet Eric

The Networking Guru

(A.K.A. MLSA's VP External)

Hello there! My name is Eric Gagnon (he/him/il/lui), and I am your friendly neighbourhood Vice-President External (VPX) for the 2023-2024 year.

I am somewhat a perpetual student, having completed my Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Sociology, and both my Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) and Master of Arts in Political Studies before attending law school here at Robson Hall. Finally, if my last name didn’t give it away, I am bilingual in both French and English, and happy to meet and chat with anyone in either language!

As your VPX, I am responsible for overseeing the activities of the Clinical Experience Committee, the Community Outreach Committee, and the Professional Development Committee, as well as facilitating communication between the Career Development office, law firms and other legal organizations in Manitoba, the Manitoba Bar Association, and students.

Outside of law school, I really enjoy spending time with friends, playing guitar, lifting weights, or otherwise being a nerd. “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us,” (Gandalf, TA 3018) so hit me up if you’re looking for somebody to join you for that day-long Lord of the Rings Extended Edition marathon!
